Coronavirus - Transmission - Causes - Symptoms - Treatment and Prevention of Coronavirus Video

What is Coronavirus?
The start of the year 2020 has an outbreak of a new coronavirus (2019-nCoV). In early December 2019, a number of pneumonia cases were reported in individuals exposed to a seafood and animal wholesale market in the city of Wuhan, Hubei province, China. Soon this new virus strain that was not reported in humans previously, was discovered to be the cause of the outbreak and worse was that the pneumonia could turn fatal. Within a month of the outbreak on 30 January the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the 2019-nCoV outbreak a global emergency.
World Health Organization reported that on 3rd Feb 2020 around 17391 people had been infected with 361 deaths reported. One needs to understand that the current strain of the virus is fatal only for people who have an underlying chronic illness such as asthma or who are otherwise immuno-compromised for any reason.
Why is the New Strain of Coronavirus More Dangerous?
What is worrisome about this new strain of coronavirus is that patients have no symptoms when they get infected. The infective stage of this virus starts a week before the flu like symptoms appear, hence by the time it is detected the virus has already infected many individuals and spreads to another location.
